The walking tour was excellent because our tour guide was excellent. Not only was he an encyclopedia of knowledge but he was funny and charming. The tour flowed effortlessly. It was a lot of fun.
If you are only in Paris for a short amount of time, this tour is perfect! You see and learn so much. There were only three of us in the group, so the tour felt very personal. The guide was very knowledgable and kind. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Amazing tour! We had Phil lead our tour on 8/11 and he did a great job. He spoken very well and clearly and what we loved most about this tour is how they really keep the groups small so you get such a great opportunity to really talk to someone who knows the city and get great advice. Would highly recommend!
This tour was advertised as three hours - actually two. Suggested Notredame was included and it wasnt. Our guide was very good and hearing the background information added impact to the sites. Good tour - just less than we expected.
Perfect for a first day tour. Keeps you moving once you get a bit tired from the time change. Gave practical advice to getting around the city and other things to see. I would recommend this tour if you have not been to Paris before.
Knowledgable and entertaining guide. Gave suggestions on food choices, places to see and expected prices, and other helpful tips.
Very good tour, guide Kit was his name I think, very very good. We would do this tour again.
